The newest addition to the Porsche Design timepiece collection is more than just a watch; it’s a compass, too. Called the P’6520 Compass Watch, the timepiece comes with the dual purpose of a watch and a compass that was inspired by its predecessor, which was first built in 1978 by no less than Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

The modern iteration of the old classic is made out of anti-allergenic titanium, primarily because the material is not magnetic and thus, should not affect the magnetic needle of the compass. The P’6520 Compass Watch features a three-hand watch with luminescent hands driven by SW300 Sellita cailbre. Just underneath the watch is a liquid compass that by itself, can be easily detached.

There’s also a scratch-resistant mirror, which, when opened, clicks into place at a 45-degree angle. Being a Porsche Design timepiece, the P’6520 Compass Watch is made out of titanium and black PVD coating and has been designed to be water resistant of up to 50 meters.

For a merchandise brand that has taken old classics - the P’6930 Chronograph also comes into mind - and given them modern day re-issues, the new 911-piece P’6520 Compass Watch is poised to become another must-have for Porsche fans the world over.

Nice watch! Simple yet fantastic. It’s like one of those watches I see on action and adventure movies. Really cool.

Well,I would say that I’m really impressed with Porsche vehicle but not for this one. I would refer a Tag Heur production than this.

Yeah same here. I have seen all the watches in that section and I would say that this is the most simple. I really don’t think that Porsche have design this one.

The features used on this item is absolutely unique and cool. The most impressive idea on this one is the titanium which is not magnetic. There will be no contraction between the compass and the watch.

hahaha. Hell! This is the most stupid creation that was add in the timepiece collection of Porsche! I think it would be better if they have offer a F1 inspired chronograph or don’r make anything at all!

hmm. I have browsed the car watch section and I have to say that this is the worst idea that I have seen! Hell! i cannot figure out on what so special in the two-in-one watch and compass! Duh, there’s a thing called GPS! Compass is too pre-historic!
